Greetings Commander, welcome to your new assignment. A brand new Hellcat is waiting for your command. Now go out and kill some foes!

You are at your base, in the north the Germans camping in the forest, in the south there are rumors about a Japanese blitz & in the east Russians are on the move.


Go west


You bravely hunt for Red October and drowns!


Try again? Y


You are at your base, in the north the Germans camping in the forest, in the south there are rumors about a Japanese blitz & in the east Russians are on the move.


Go north


Covered by the Schwarzwald forest you plan your next move. Go north and you go head to head with the enemy, go west and flank them, go east and join the Russian strike force, go south as the chicken you are.


Go west


Covered by windmills & tulips you spot the enemy camping at the water resort. First shot… missed! second shot… some splash damage on the fearless Tiger. Your move commander!


1 load gold (4)
2 load he (10)
3 load ap (10)


Loaded with gold you aim carefully, the shot penetrates the Tigers hull and….
…. it explodes! Congratulation to your first kill commander!


In the north the Germans now waiting for you, in the east the Russians are on the move. West? Don’t even think about it! South? No time for surrender…


Go east


The Russians wants to ally with you, suspiciously you deliberate your options…


1 – Of course I need an Ally
2 – I don’t trust them and friendly declines


Trust is an issue, you leave the Russians and see them leave for an assault on the Germans in the north.


Next move commander!


Draw back to the west and heal yourself, follow the Russians to the north, aim for the Japs in the south or continue your quest in the east.

 

Go north


You sneaky bastard! Following the Russians to the north you pinpoint the German defense. The Russians attacking with their superior IS-7, he bravely attacks.  It start to rain big shells from the German defense line, the IS-7 is crippled but succeed to damage the Waffenträgers cannon

 

Commander! Now have your chance!


1 IS-7
2 Waffenträger


Targeting Waffenträger


1 load gold (3)
2 load he (10)
3 load ap (10)


The wallet warrior in you has no reason to change ammo, aiming carefully at the defenseless German, the outcome is obvious, and it’s a kill! The crew of the IS-7 salutes you and gratefully thanks you for the support given. Still loaded with gold you plot for your next move.


The Hellcats turret turns, now aiming at the IS-7, he’s crippled, time to choose your colors.


1 Team up, there are still Germans out there and the IS-7 is heavy metal, good to have in any platoon.
2 What the hell! Kill the Russian…


BOOOM! You trigger happy kill stealer! You blew up the Russian with no regrets! Reino Lehväslaiho is proud over you. No enemies are too big or fearful for you.


Episod 1 finnished

Hope so! Time to learn programmers to use good old "basic", so we can play it on our "supercomputers" ;)

I can still remember some folks playing that "dungeons and dragons" game at my college's computer lab, as I was trying to finish some paper or homework! hahahaha.... made an impression those days (1991).... At the time I liked Civilization I, had no clue how those guys use to play that game, didnt know how a pc worked, or any programming and internet was still something only in the imagination of most of the people. And look at us now... 

Somehow I dont miss those games tho... They were good for those days, yes. Now Wot is just fine I think. I miss the ladies I used to date in college, yeah! Gimme some of those girls back anytime! Not the pcs or the pc games we used to have. The photos of the terminal are just about enough memorabilia for me.
